Erection of Replacement Dwelling, Barnby Dun, Doncaster, South Yorkshire
Case Study Reference: 11-09-03
Planning Authority: Metropolitan Borough of Doncaster
Planning Reference: 11/01153/FUL
As the development site was in close proximity to both a landfill and a garage a contaminated land planning condition was attached to the decision notice for the development of the site.
Demeter Environmental were commissioned to prepare a desk study report for the subject site, which identified part of the site as a landfill. In order to fully characterise the landfill a number of trial pits were excavated in the landfill to determine if any in-filling had taken place. The intrusive works demonstrated that the landfill was not a credible source of contamination and the desk study was sufficient to discharge the contaminated land planning condition.
